Share buttons (bar + left-side-scrolling)


These share buttons can be used for various websites, enabling its visitors to share specific URLs on social networks, or to enable them to do micro-domnations via flattr.

The buttons are much more user-friendly than many other solutions:

  • There is absolutely no JavaScript required
  • No third-party resources are loaded
  • Users of GNU Social and Diaspora can easily provide their pod URL and use the native sharing API


The buttons are currently available as a usual “share bar”, so all buttons in one line (see Screenshot 1), and as a left-side vertical bar scrolling with the screen (see Screenshot 2).


Buttons can easily be added and removed by a few lines of code in the HTML, CSS, and PHP files.

  • In the HTML file, you can just copy/paste the exiting code and modify it. Note that services with user-dependent URLs (like Diaspora and GNU Social) are a bit more complicated and require another GET parameter to be added (like diasporapod) which has to be read by share.php.
  • In the PHP file the parameters are put together, depending on the format the service understands.
  • The CSS files keeps all layout information.


The buttons have been designed by Paul Hänsch and Max Mehl in their capacity as FSFE webmasters.
